Politics gone porno?

May 5, 2010

Exhibit 1:

That was an attack ad the NRSC thinks worthy of running. The image used? A still shot from a home video of the Lt. Governor working on a memo in his own home late at night. Wrong for Ohio? This tasteless ad certainly is, if nothing else.

Exhibit 2:

Harry Reid, wordsmith that he is, uses the phrase “making love to Wall Street” to describe his frustration with Republican efforts to stymie Wall Street Financial Reform. An unusual choice of words, perhaps, but only a small part of a much larger statement: Republican Senators are doing the bidding of Wall Street banks in blocking the advancement of Financial Reform that is favored by over two-thirds of the country.  Mr. Reid’s spokeman, Jim Manley, when asked, echoed the sentiment:

“What can I say — it’s true. Republicans are making love to Wall Street, while the people on Main Street are getting screwed.” (h/t Ryan Grimm, HuffPost)

Exhibit 3:

Republican response to Majority Leader Reid’s quite legitimate criticism of GOP tactics? Shortly after Mr. Reid’s statement, the NRSC blasted an email to reporters focusing on…Reid’s “bizarre” language. (You owe me a Coke if you thought it had anything to with substance over diversion!) In fact, NRSC Communications Director Brian Walsh wrote in the email:

“Senator Reid would be well-advised to get his mind off sex and onto getting America’s economy back on track.”

Yikes! Apparently it’s 12-year-old boy week in American politics, particularly at the NRSC. (No offense to 12-year-old boys.)

    That attack ad was creepy. If I lived in Ohio, it would be hard for me to keep that image out of my head on election day.
    Score one for the sickos in the NRSC.
